Limited Capacity seats available

How do we give English language learners access to rich problems and stories in our math classrooms? How can we decrease frustration and increase engagement and participation?


In this session, you'll participate in a short problem-solving lesson in Spanish to experience sheltering and scaffolding strategies that will support English language learners in the CCSS and Mathematical Practices. You'll explore how to to set up contextualized problems/ stories so that English language learners have enough background to go deeper and truly get to the active problem-solving. You will also gain insights into how to deliver timely and effective feedback in ways that students can understand it and use it to support their learning. You'll leave with concrete strategies and instructional moves to give English language learners access to the projects, Three Act Tasks and story problems that you are already using in your classroom, along with insights into ways you can provide more effective feedback and supports. 


Note: This session is appropriate for teachers who have zero to an intermediate level of Spanish; while a short lesson will be in Spanish, the reflection and share outs will be in English, so participants can fully participate in the professional dialogue. Strategies presented will be applicable for English language learners who speak a variety of languages, not just Spanish.
